Commenting article: What a Terrible Time for Europe to Show Bulgaria the Cold Shoulder

The Guardian

Yavor Siderov

Plamen Goranov set himself alight in a country desperate to reform itself. Emigration is not at the forefront of Bulgarian minds.

"The government of populist PM Boiko Borisov promptly resigned, plunging Bulgaria into political as well as economic crisis. Borisov's indecently hasty departure caused some to suspect Moscow's involvement, Russia being a powerful player in the energy business regionally. Others point the finger at the US. There is a palpable sense of confusion on the streets as ordinary people and false messiahs clutch at ideological and conspiratorial straws".***********************That is exactly what I thought, an indecently hasty departure, which has taken everyone by surprise. Borisov is sweating because his murky past has and is finally catching up with him. News flash on Australian TV............Berlusconi of Italy has just been convicted and received one 1 year prison time for only one of his trials currently ongoing. Are you listening BB????? You are not immune to anything as you well may think.

Chushki - 7 Mar 2013 // 15:21:05

Oh Tania, if you check the number of successful convictions for corruption, fraud, organized crime etc over the past 20 years and the competency of the Bulgarian judiciary then you may wish to reconsider your indignant demands for justice.

Tania OZ - 7 Mar 2013 // 15:34:08

Yes I agree with that Chuski and that is precisely my point. Something has got to give and for real change to begin. It has to at some point in time.

Sveto - 7 Mar 2013 // 21:34:58

Tanya, are you out of your mind? To compare Berlusconi with BB. The italian is one of the most powerful mafia boys (it is a miracle they achieved any sort of a sentence, which by the way will never be served). That guy is so rich and strong that soon enough all will be forgotten and he will rule the country again. Because that's how things roll allover the world. Corruption and politics are those who pull the strings. The stronger the country, the bigger the corruption and the political manipulation. There is NO COUNTRY free of this disaster.
BB has never been involved in a murky businesses with the mafia. Those are yellow insinuations coming from a communist propaganda tools like The idea is to tell the public once your sister was a whore and than go explaining you have had no sister. The communist machinery is deep into the entire society and manipulates everything as it pleases. For the first time since the fall of the commies there was a government that tried to change things and the resistance was enormous. Yet the final straw was reached when the Russian nuclear plant was voted down by the referendum. That pissed the russians so much off, that the big brother moved the tentacles in the name of BCP and elaborated this "revolution of the people" to destroy Bprosov's government. That is the sad reality, and if you just look the history of the human kind you will understand that people as an entity have NEVER masterminded any revolution whosoever! People have always been manipulated into revolting. Look at the 'leaders" of the protests in Sofia. All of them are paid members of either BCP, or Alexey Petrov's party. I can write even more about Europe's double standards and the games of the powerful 3 countries, but I guess it is a subject to another thread. What I will suggest is that you read a little bit more from different sources, and listen a little bit less what is being said on the streets before you start expressing opinions. Because as it stands right now you don't seem to be overly qualified for that.

Tania OZ - 8 Mar 2013 // 01:57:36

No Sveto, I am not out of my mind; are you? Maybe you should read up alittle more yourself and stop believing your own propaganda. My sources of information/literature are wide and varied and I form my own opinions, because I can. This I believe is a forum for all to express personal opinion. How do you know what I am or am not qualified for? Do you have a crystal ball there in front of you? And by the way, I do understand the way the world rolls. I am not a naive idiot. The cancer runs deep in Bulgaria, irrespective of whichever political party is in power.

burning spear - 8 Mar 2013 // 14:52:20

Sveto - you must be either very naive, blinkered, very closed minded or one of BB's agents.

Anybody living in BG will tell you that BB is a very rich man, Just have a look at the BACB balance sheet. Silent partner in all the big transactions in the country. He will buy like Berlu the next election. You should read carefully what Tania OZ says...

I think its time for a BG style Beppe Grillo. Time to stand up and show the finger to the kleptocracy BG is. Let's start with those parliamentarians, the mafia next! An African country based in Europe!

With alll sincere respect, Sveto: "...the big brother moved the tentacles in the name of BCP and elaborated this "revolution of the people" to destroy Bprosov's government"---Every thing under these
skies is possible, sure, still Your thesis....I doubt it, I doubt it very much. Think that the fundamental reasons of the current events in Bulgaria are much deeper.

Sveto - 8 Mar 2013 // 16:20:50

Tanya suffice to ready your writings to know pretty well where you stand. Haha crystal ball, a few sentences of yours and you ar e an open book.

Sveto - 8 Mar 2013 // 16:52:22

Now this "burning spear" is a real example of the Alexey Petrov's barking dogs. Insinuation after insinuation. "Everybody in BG knows", no clear documents just words and insinuations. I stand by my words suffice to say your sister is a whore, than go proving you have no sister. Everything in just 3-4 sentences, that individual suggested we should "get rid of the parliament" as if anybody in the world has gotten rid of it. For good or bad this is de-facto the best humankind has come up with. Than he suggested to "get rid of the mafia", as if mafia has been defeated in any place in the world, if anything it is getting stronger and stronger as we go on a global scale. And than finally to top it up he suggested to make out of BG "an African country in the EU". I have nothing else to say, you draw the conclusions. Those are the "leaders" of the protests in Sofia. So what exactly are they wanting? And who are they directing the demands to? What happened to the electricity bills? What exactly does the change in the system mean? From democracy back to communism because you know back then everything was so cheap, or free. Right? Well guess what, there is no free meal out there, and never was. Another lesson to learn soon.

kuzmanov - 8 Mar 2013 // 19:44:25

It was named MILICIONERSHTINA. Indede all of "ruling elite" were mean communist swines. Indeed Bojko the "Democrate" was simply a Communist Party memeber until 1995.

Tania OZ - 9 Mar 2013 // 00:58:09

"Tanya suffice to ready your writings to know pretty well where you stand. Haha crystal ball, a few sentences of yours and you ar e an open book."**************************************Sveto, at least my sentences make sense! Unlike your ranting and raving and contradictions.

Sveto - 9 Mar 2013 // 01:32:18

Indeed Tania, yours as my writings are openly visible for everyone. So people can judge who makes sense and who contradict himself, also who is just barbering words without stating a factual data.

Sveto - 9 Mar 2013 // 01:52:35

And Tania a few more words to guide you in your self educational journey.
When you accuse somebody of something, it is yours the burden of prove through actual facts that is, otherwise it has to be considered a rant from a person with discrediting agenda in mind. As an example of a well founded accusation I will suggest you read the open letter of Edwin Sugarev, which was sent a week ago to the chef Prosecutor of BG. In that letter the person Sergei Stanishev and the communist gang around him have been accused of COUNTLESS criminal doings in the period before the government of GERB. Getting acquainted with the contents of this letter might open your eyes for the real enemies of the country, if that matters at all to you.

Chushki - 9 Mar 2013 // 06:32:29


"Bojko the "Democrate" was simply a Communist Party memeber until 1995."

Is this the same Communist Party that was dissolved in 1990?
